Pop Expo 2013! (Pic Heavy!)
Today's post isn't really makeup related, but I just went to the Ottawa Pop Expo and thought I would do a post about it, along with a cool shop I found in the vendor area! I also bought a few things of course and I will show those too! The above photo is me in front of the Ghostbusters van. You are about to find out just how big a nerd I am.
Ottawa Pop Expo is sort of like a sci-fi convention but more for television and movies in general. I did find once I was there that there was still a ton of science fiction stuff, which I was pleased about. I went with three friends from work and we got there at about 9am, an hour early. We figured there would be a line, but we were wrong. We went on the second day, so I'm not sure why we were worried. We had to sit around and wait for an hour because we were so early, but eventually we got in.
Pop Expo is definitely the smallest convention I have ever been to. It was basically one giant warehouse sized room of vendors and signature booths. On either side there were a few smaller rooms for panels and such. Regardless of that, there were still a few celebrities there, and some famous cosplayers who were taking pictures and doing autographs.
Tom Felton from Harry Potter was there as well as a couple of actors from The Walking Dead. One of my friends waited in line for a signature from Norman Reedus who plays Daryl on The Walking Dead. I was most excited to see Jason Momoa though! He played Ronan on Stargate Atlantis as well as Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones. I love Stargate and I must admit I have a bit of a crush on the guy (he's married oh well). We went to his Q&A panel at the end of the day and it was great! On to some pictures!!!
Now I will quickly show you the things I got and be done. This post is going to be way too long!
The last thing I got was from the cutest booth in the entire place. It was called Angelyques Trinkets and it was run by this adorable girl who hand makes all these amazing accessories! I bought this:
Etsy store that you can check out. My absolute favourites are the little crowns that come on a headband. There are some plain metal ones and then ones that have glass panes on them. I didn't get one but as soon as I get all my holiday pay this year I am ordering myself some fanciful crowns! They are just too cute! I suggest you check out her store.
That's everything I did/got on my Pop Expo adventure! I hope this wasn't too long. Have you ever been to any conventions?
